Welcome Guest Sam Olden

Sam Olden is back as a guest for the month of June! Welcome and thank you for joining us again! Sam is starting off with a fun technique and a way to get more out of your dies. I know that this is not the only technique Sam will be sharing, so stay tuned for more on the way! Plus, Sam is joining us for our June new release and this month’s challenges.

Samantha Olden

Hi there, my name is Samantha and you can find me posting on my corner of the internet at Instagram – @samjolden and my website sams-studio.ca. Some of my favourite things in life are photography, baking cookies (to eat of course), family pizza and movie night, visiting and exploring new places and of course card making. I was introduced to card making by my bestie, of well over 30 years, about 5 years ago and I haven’t looked back.

I love this hobby because it never gets dull, there is always a new technique or fun new stamp set to use and when your finished creating you have a little piece of you, that you can give to someone else.

I am very happy to be back joining the Your Next Stamp team. Thanks so much guys for having me. I love how playful and fun their stamps are to create with. 

Generally speaking I find masculine cards a tougher card to make. However if I go with a cleaner style and a simple colour palette it usual tends to work out. For this card, I pulled out my wave panel die which I have used so many times. This is the first time I have used the die to create a mask and paint the interior parts.

Usually when masking on a card I use the typical masking paper you get, but that doesn’t always work so well when you start adding water colouring into the mix. So this was a first for me, I die cut the wave panel mask out of Contact Paper. The end result is a very cool single layer watercolored piece that you can add whatever die you like to on top.

There is more on the way from Sam! It is going to be a fun month!

Stacey K’s card caught our attention with the pup from YNS cool Tees.

Sea Splash

Guest Ushii Landia is back with a final project for May. Once again, Ushii is getting creative with supplies and this time she is heading back to the sea.

Instagram (@ushiilandia), my FB (https://www.facebook.com/ushiilandia/) or meet me at my blog http://ushiilandia.blogspot.com/ (in Polish)

I wanted to share with you a really simple card with a cute dolphin from the Sea Friends set.

I started by lightly inking a stencil on to the card base. I then colored a separate piece of card stock with the same stencil, cut out the pattern and adhered the hand cut shapes to the card base. With layers of color it creates a big splash!


Thank you Ushii for sharing your creativity and inspiring us all!

Happy Stamping!

Thank You Teacher

Guest Ushii Landia is back with a thank you card for all the teachers out there. Get ready for her signature no line coloring and soft style.

This year is really difficult for everyone, including all students and – of course – their teachers. So it’s worth to give thanks to them for everything they do! I created a card with stamp from the Learning is Fun set.

I stamped the image three times and colored every part separately – this way I was able to make my scene more dimensional.

The card base I used was slightly longer then usual (8x4in).  I created a soft ink blended background with cloud stencil and I added some extra clouds from the Puffy Cloud Die Set – I stamped a greeting on one of them in my Misti.

Then I adhered everything with a glue and double sided foam tape, and decided to add some colorful dots and cute little bird from the Holiday Wreaths set.


Ushii is back tomorrow with one final project for May.

Happy Stamping!
